Los Angeles: 'Silver Linings Playbook' star Bradley Cooper, who recently lost the Academy Award for best actor to 'Lincoln' actor Daniel Day-Lewis, insists accolades have never been a driving force in his career choices.
"I don't want to win an Oscar. It would change nothing. Nothing. The things in my life that aren't fulfilled, would not be fulfilled," the 38-year-old told the April issue of British GQ magazine.
He also explained that the loss of his stockbroker father, Charles Cooper, forced him to re-evaluate what matters most in life, reports showbizspy.com.
"Death became very real. And very tangible. Because my father - someone who had been in my life for 36 years is just f***ing gone," he said.
"I watched him dying and I was there by his bed watching him, breathing with him, and then I saw his last breath and he was gone. I experienced the whole thing. And that was a watershed moment that I was privileged to experience. And it changed everything. Nothing has ever been the same since," he added.
